Love The Show so far!
I really like The Oval, which is why I even watched this show. This is really good! I watch all four available episodes and I am so eager to see the rest of the series. The reason that I only gave 3 stars is because of the fact that you have to have a $10 per month subscription for this and in all honesty I will not continue after my 7day free trial, because it's just another bill! Exspecially considering the fact that I pay for Prime, I feel like this should be included with prime (Sorry not sorry!)! Add more content if you want to charge people a monthly fee for this channel. Do your research BET+ (Netflix, Hulu, Prime, Disney Plus) add content! Content is key here!

BEWARE DO NOT WATCH!!!
DO NOT WATCH THIS SHOW!!! I understand Tyler Perry is trying to create more "out of the box" story plots for his shows but this is just crossing the line. Especially for those of us in the christian community. I didn't appreciate the scene were the guy claiming to be "the highest" came on and told that girl she was in the presence of god. That is way too close to actual intimate moments that are experienced in the REAL presence of God. I feel that was too much. Certain things aren't to be imitated or distorted just for views. I don't like this show at all. Too much perversion and spiritual darkness. This script is way too twisted its gross.

"The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eyes are unhealthy, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!" -Matthew 6:22-24

Beware
The nude and sexual content is a bit much..Some things should be left out even if it's adult rated... It shows the twistedness of the writers mind...

Loved
I enjoyed the first three episodes. I'm not happy that its on BET PLUS and I have to pay $9.99 a mo. I would have much rather purchased the entire season through Amazon. I don't watch enough BET PLUS to pay $9.99 a mo. Plus I already have cable and have access to regular BET. Why aren't they showing it on BET? I do enjoy the OVAL and that's what brought me here. I think, I like Ruthless better than the OVAL and that's my show. I'm not a fan of SISTERS but this show right here is the one. I cannot wait to see what happens next in this series. Honestly after this season is over the BET PLUS is off my account though.

Ruthless Is The Best
I watched all the episodes last night. I actually like Ruthless more than The Oval and Sistahs. This is a powerful series with a lot of life lessons. I once was invited to a church "Woman's Day," which I discovered after two hours was a cult recruitment event for single woman, never married, with no children. I was the perfect age and I had a good job and made good money. I also erroneously thought I was too smart to ever be present at a cult event. I got out without joining that day and told my family, friends, and coworkers. My sister had heard of the cult and I managed to do research on them online after the fact. So, I am glad Tyler Perry is tackling this subject. I hope it enlightens people, especially African Americans who can get tricked into joining a cult. Very realistic and I enjoyed the performances and being introduced to new actors.

Derogatory Madness
Hated it! Depressing Jim Jones BS.. A derogatory lense to see my ppl in.. I know TV is full of this type of madness but this was an extra heavy dose of Madness.. Not my cup of tea.

Not Good!
If you can watch it for free by all means, watch it! As usual, (for his serious shows), the writing is weak; the actors are very unbelievable. The plot is weak!! I started watching the first episode, then skimmed through the rest. I wish he would hire some better writers! They are out there. I was very disappointed.
